About
Description
As the name suggests, the Shelter Bay Marina Hoteloverlooks the picturesque Shelter Bay Marina in the old FortSherman area, at the edge of the Fort San Lorenzo NationalPark. Easily found just a few minutes’ ...More drive after crossing theGatun Locks at the Caribbean entrance to the Panama Canal,where the jungle is our back door and the ocean our front.The Hotel offers just the right balance of peace and quiet,with an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. You canwalk around at dusk and see monkeys playing in the trees,colorful toucans flying and the most tranquil of sloths relaxingalong with the wide diversity of flora you might expect from aprimary rain forest. We are just 15 minutes from Fort SanLorenzo and walking distance from Playa Diablo. Whether it isa weekend escape to relax and enjoy the views, or acomfortable room while your yacht is being repaired, theShelter Bay Marina Hotel is right where you need it. Less
